The second edition of "Fluid Machinery: Performance, Analysis, and Design" provides a comprehensive introduction to the fluid mechanics of turbomachinery. By focusing on the preliminary design and selection of equipment to meet performance specifications, the authors promote a basic yet thorough understanding of the subject. Topics covered include gas and hydraulic turbines as well as industrial equipment such as pumps and fans, making the text ideal for undergraduate mechanical engineering students. This book presents illustrations, examples, and exercises that emphasize real-world industrial applications of fluid machinery.

Philip M. Gerhart holds a BSME degree from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and MS and PhD degrees from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is a registered professional engineer in Indiana and Ohio. He was a professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Akron from 1971 to 1984, chair of the department of mechanical and civil engineering at the University of Evansville from 1985 to 1995, and has been dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science since 1995. Dr. Gerhart has written two books and more than 35 scholarly papers and reports. He has been principal investigator on grants from the United States Army, NASA, the National Science Foundation, and the Electric Power Research Institute. He has served as a consultant to several firms in the power and process industries. He serves as an associate director of the Indiana Space Grant Consortium. Dr. Gerhart is a member of the American Society for Engineering Education and a fellow member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. He served as ASME's vice-president for Performance Test Codes from 1998 to 2001. He has served many years on the Performance Test Codes Standards Committee and the technical committees on fans and fired steam generators. He was awarded the ASME's Performance Test Codes Gold Medal in 1993 and the Silver Beaver award from the Boy Scouts of America in 2001. a Terry Wright holds BS, MS, and PhD degrees from aerospace engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology and is a registered professional engineer (retired) from Alabama. He initially joined the Westinghouse Research Laboratories and served there for many years as a research scientist and fellow engineer. Much of his effort in this period was in working with the Sturtevant Division of the Westinghouse Corporation, involved with their design and manufacture of turbomachinery. Dr. Wright became a professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in the mid-1980s, and was active in teaching and mentoring in fluid mechanics and applications in turbomachinery and minimization of turbomachinery-generated noise. While at the university, he consulted with industrial manufacturers and end users of turbomachinery equipment. In addition to his academic and research activities, he also served as chairman of the department of mechanical engineering through most of the 1990s.
